“The active promotion of Mauritius as a year-round Golf Destination increasing the number of international golfer arrivals.”
“To be globally recognized as one of the finest golf destinations on the planet and a reference point for others.”
Message from the President of the MGTA
I am deeply honoured to have been invited to pen this note to the inaugural issue as President of the Mauritius Golf Tourism Association (MGTA). With its rich history and mix of various cultural traditions, Mauritius is indeed a privileged country to visit. With nine golf courses of international standard, linked mostly to major luxury local and international hotel chains around the island, the Mauritian golf business industry is booming; and, with two more projects underway. More than a mere sport or tourist attraction, golf in Mauritius has been swinging on a steady growth rate of 6% annually. Surrounded by beautiful beaches and the turquoise sea, our island possesses all the assets to position itself as the exotic golf destination of the Indian Ocean.
Our Golf Association (MGTA) is run by golf directors and management teams of the different golf courses of the island; people who are passionate about their work and devoted to the game itself. Our main objective is to promote golf, and provide information to golfers around the world relating to the different course infrastructure, facilities, and events. Whether you are a Pro or an amateur in search of quality time far from the maddening crowds of Europe, Africa, or Asia, Mauritius is the place for your next golf holiday!
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
Yours in golf,
